This Heavy Duty Cross Rail Kit is an ideal solution if you are unable to use all attach a centre rail on the bed frame. Many manufacturers try to saving on Material when manufacturing bed frames; they do not leave you a section of timber on the headboard end for you screw a centre rail on.
These four Heavy Duty Cross Rails will be placed width wise along the bed. Ideally you would place the first and last cross rail approximately 4 -5 inches from the top and bottom of the bed. You would then spread the other two cross rail evenly between the first and last cross rails.
